Crooks was 22 at the time, while Trump was aged 59.
Ms Crooks told the Post that Mr Trump was only the second man to ever kiss her at the time of the alleged incident.
An Ohio woman's claim that Donald Trump stole a long and unwelcome kiss from her in the lobby of Trump Tower some 13 years ago is fake news, the president declared Tuesday. "He took hold of my hand and held me in place like this", she said, squeezing the sides of the water glass, shaking it gently from side to side. She describes Trump first grabbing her hand, then kissing her on the cheek and then the lips.
"I just want people to listen".
She said she felt "feelings of self-doubt and insignificance" for a decade before becoming emboldened to tell her story after she began to hear other women's claims ahead of the 2016 U.S. election. The incident lasted about two minutes, according to Crooks.
Despite Trump's denials, Crooks says she will continue sharing her story to speak out against the "character" of the president, dismissing the idea of a lawsuit. Never happened! Who would do this in a public space with live security.
Trump claims the accusations were all made for political reasons, and lawyer Lisa Bloom, who has represented several women who claim to have been sexually harassed by Trump, has admitted that her firm offered to pay some of the women. In a series of tweets that were fired off earlier today, he brandishes this story as "fake news".
She responded to Trump's claims that he would never assault anyone in public by asking to release the security footage.
Now, she is running for office in OH for the state legislature. "Trump wrote, later adding in another tweet: "...cameras running.
"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them". I just kiss. I don't even wait.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter to deny the account of a woman who says he forcibly kissed her without her consent in Trump Tower in 2006, saying it "never happened!"
"When you're a star, they let you do it", Trump said.
Ms Crooks was one of three women who publicly claimed to have been harassed by Mr Trump and called for a Congressional investigation into the allegations in December. How many women have to come forward?
